MY PLACE AWARDS 2020 - NOMINATIONS AND SUBMISSIONS OPEN
The My Place Awards celebrate community-led built environment projects that have transformed their locality. The Awards honour projects that have excelled in terms of design and community involvement/impact.
Winners of the My Place Awards are honoured at a reception at Glasgow's The Lighthouse and have a short film commissioned about their project. Winners and finalists are also featured in an exhibition at The Lighthouse. The My Place Awards are a great opportunity to showcase a project's success to the community, stakeholders and funders by receiving much-deserved exposure and media attention. The short film about Bellsbank, the 2019 My Place Award winner, reached over 16,600 people on Facebook and the My Place exhibition at The Lighthouse hosted over 12,300 visitors and built environment stakeholders!
Community councils may have suitable projects themselves, or know of others in their area.
HOW TO ENTER…. This year we’ve revamped the nomination process to make it even simpler to apply. Local people can nominate any project they think is special by tagging us on social media @scotcivictrust or by answering a few questions here. Or you can give us a call at 0141 221 1466 for a brief chat. The SCT team will then follow up with the nominated projects. Community groups can also directly apply through our My Place website.
